I am VERY impressed with the quality of the book and the wonderful photos! Now I can relate the aloes in my collection with the pictures and descriptions in your book!!…Once again – thank you!!…Pieter Van der Walt, South-Africa
It is bigger than I expected and has no less than 1122 photos – an incredible comprehensive record of the 144 species. Well done. It’s a beautiful book!… Roy Mottram, UK
L’ ouvrage que vous venez de publier était attendu depuis longtemps: une synthèse sur les Aloe de Madagascar et des îles voisines. Son contenu et les remarquables illustrations en font un livre destiné aux succulentophiles mais aussi au grand public. Félicitations.

Votre livre est magnifique. Amitiés … Friderici Christian, Mayotte
You did fantastic job! It is nice to see again places of origin of our plants. On the other side it is sad to see destroyed localities. I think such beautiful book can help a lot in conservation of threatened Aloes and their biotopes, much more than scientific papers…Tomas Pes, Botanical Garden, Plzen Czech Republic
… et encore bravo pour la qualité de votre travail.

Dear Jean-Bernard and Jean-Philippe: I just received your new book yesterday from my friend John Miller. I just want to let you guys know how really great I think it is!!! All the wonderful photos and useful information will make this a tremendous addition to every horticulturalist’s library. I’ve been an avid aloe collector for nearly 40 years here in San Diego California. I have a 3.5 acre botanical garden devoted mostly to aloes. You lovely new book will bring hours of enjoyment. Thanks for the very valuable contribution to the wonderful world of aloes! Sincerely,
Philip Favell, USA
